About The Cuban
The Cuban is a gorgeous piece of Havana right in the centre city. Open 7 days from 3pm.
Sample exquisite Cuban street food... Marvel at the extensive selection of rum, and our very own Cuba Laga (lager)... All while relaxing in the stunning covered courtyard.
See you at The Cuban. It’s our little taste of Havana in the central city!
Slow delivery of food. Found meal to be average. Music played not suitable for the time of day and the customers dining at the time
A really good selection of drinks and the menu did give you the experience of Cuban food. The Cuba Laga (lager) was crisp and tasty.A nice drop. The four of us enjoyed our dinning experience at The Cuban.Top marks.
Awesome food, great team looking after us!
Mocktails were terrible. Keri juice as seen with our own eyes. Croquettes boring taste, mushrooms ok, fish tacos small and potatoes with cheese average. Floor was sticky and the whole place was being cleaned from the night before. Never go there again.
The food is amazing and consistently good every time. It’s well priced with options to please most people. My only gripe would be the service, it was a little unwelcoming/awkward. I would order Uber Eats from here again but not sure I would dine-in...
We were the only people there but the food and service were good.
Mojitos were fantastic. The Cuban platter was disappointing. Lots of meat and carbs. Thought some salsa would have been nice and chipotle. Ribs not an easy sharing food and very dry. Waffle fries were really tasty!
This is fabulous. Food was so tasty and service was great.Tried different dishes and went back for more. 10/10 from us
The drinks saved it the rib was tough the sausage had no flavour the chicken burger was ok the chicken was alright as were the onion rings
We had a great service on a Friday night. We had croquettes and ccc chicken as starts. Then we had beef burger and taco. Would recommend going to the Cuban.
It's a shame they put food and drink together because the food was wonderful. I'd have given it 5 stars! But the wine list is terrible. I didn't even finish my white wine, which, trust me, never happens! It's so easy to get good cheap wine in NZ so this could be fixed in a heartbeat. The service was really good. The staff were friendly and attentive, and made sure we were warm enough, putting a gas heater close by. The atmosphere is pretty good. The only thing that I found a bit off, was the music. They had a play list on very loud that was suited to a busy Friday night. As it was a very quiet Tuesday evening, something more in tune with a couple out for dinner together would've been appreciated. Overall, very pleasant though, and I'd go back. Thank you to the staff and chefs.
Fast, friendly service! Food and cocktails were amazing! Only comment I would make is that the staff weren't wearing a uniform as such our waiter was wearing a puffer jacket so was like is he staff?? Other then that we had a great evening and will definitely be back!
we had a table of 7. Everyone said they wouldn't go back because of the service. When we sat down not everyone was given a menu so we had to share for about 15 minutes until they finally brought more. We ordered drinks but 1 persons drink didn't arrive until ages after everyone else because the lady behind the bar got busy with walk up customers. 1 persons meal got forgotten about and everyone had finished by the time hers arrived. The lady who brought the food to the table would just bring a meal and plonk it infront of anyone at the table, she wouldn't announce what the meal was and then put in front of the correct person. every time she brought a meal we'd have to ask what the dish was and then she'd still just put it in front of anyone so we'd have to pass it round the table to the correct person. The restaurant wasn't even half full but the staff seemed disorganized and busy. The meals were not great value for money. 2 of is ordered the chicken salad, it was tasty but was mostly lettuce and hardly any chicken...or anything else.
Great food and reasonable prices with friendly service. Highly recommend.
Food was great. Good service. Very poor selection of beers, everything else great.
I'm just commenting so I don't get fined.
Great food! We placed an order before arrival as we didn't have much time and the food was ready for us when we got there.
We weren't wowed. It was ok.
No live music on weekends anymore ?
Really enjoyed the chicken & fish tacos they were delicious. Great atmosphere with excellent service,will definitively be going back.
The food was amazing, we cleared the plates! Service was great and we loved the cosy fire and couches. Deffos be back :)
Had an amazing time, delicious food, great music and delectable cocktails.
Loved the variety of food available. We ordered about 8 small plates of starters and tapas to share. All were delicious and tasty with unique flavours. Thanks The Cuban, we will be back again.
What a great meal we had! First Table booking for 4 and a chance to try this amazing place. Had been told it was great, with a pumping atmosphere on a Saturday night. We were attending on Wednesday and only another couple of diners were in the place. Loved the fit-out, and the staff were friendly. Great food and good to have some authentic Cuban beers as well. We will be back soon.
